Driveway Art

One of my chores at the Nature Center is the mail.  Sometimes, I take the outgoing mail on my way out and drop it in a post office box.  Sometimes, I walk it out to the roadside mailbox and put up the red flag.

On may way out to that this week, my eye was drawn by reflections in the puddles on the surface of the blacktop, and the way the yellow arrow seemed to float on top of it all.

When I turned it to black and white, I loved the way the reflections of the branches showed up in the arrow.

Later in the afternoon, after I was sure the mail carrier had been by to pick up the outgoing mail and leave the new stuff, a vehicle passed me as I walked out. I noticed the vehicle was dripping fluids onto the wet driveway. The colors were extreme, and the patterns were interesting.

I converted each to black and white to emphasize the patterns.

By the time I walked to the mailbox and started back, the fluids had evaporated destroying the colors and patterns.  Right place, right time.
